Fantasy football playoffs are just around the corner, but injured NFL stars are giving fantasy owners headaches as teams push for the postseason.

It's difficult to find a player who is not banged up this late into a season, so fantasy owners have a hard time deciding who to go with each week. Injuries can make it tough to manage a team.

Stars who have had solid seasons but are injured make it even tougher to set a lineup. If it's a questionable call, go with the star over a sleeper. Most big-time players will still put up good numbers even if they are nicked up.
